The Iranians attempt to cause offence.

Liberation reports on the long awaited exhibition of anti-semitic cartoons in Tehran. One of the organisers claims 'We've opened this exhibition to find out just where the West's limits on freedom of expression lie'. It looks to contain all the usual yawn inducing iconography of Shields of David mutating into Swastikas etc. Anyone who knows the Arab dailies (or looks at Memri.org) will know that there is nothing new in this, and such cartoons are the bread and butter of Arab cartoonsts.

Meanwhile, some Israeli cartoonists rose to the challenge with this lot . One of the organisers commented: “We’ll show the world we can do the best, sharpest, most offensive Jew hating cartoons ever published! No Iranian will beat us on our home turf!”

I rather liked this one:
